We also run private workshops in the shop for 3-6 people, so if you and some friends would like to take part drop us a note.
DATES - 12.09.18. Both from 18:30.
This is a beginner's workshop, starting from scratch, with a little introduction to good technique and some nib knowledge. We'll go straight into some practice exercises, then move on to letterforms. By the end of the session you will be able to write your name or a favourite quote. Alice has been working as a stationery designer and modern calligrapher from her studio in East London for nearly ten years.
This two hour workshop will provide you with everything you need to know to create a beautiful nature inspired woven wall hanging on a frame loom. You will gain an understanding of different weaving techniques such as rya, looping and pattern making, and you will have a chance to experiment with a wide range of vintage and natural yarns to create texture and colour. By the end of the class you will not only have picked up the techniques and styles needed to create a wall hanging, but will also be on your way to finding your own unique weaving voice.
This three hour hands-on workshop will show you how to make a variety of beautiful candles. Choose from a range of fragrances and dyes to personalise your very own candle range. At the end you take home the candles you have made.
